Art Project - Google Arts & Culture

The Vancouver Art Gallery, founded in 1931, is one of the leading Canadian art museums. Reflecting Vancouver’s prominence over the past decade on the international stage as a major center for contemporary art, the Gallery is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of the museum experience and to undertaking programs that explore the relationship between contemporary life and artistic creativity. Located in a magnificent turn-of-the-century landmark building, the Gallery is a focal point of downtown Vancouver and host to numerous cultural events. The Gallery provides dynamic and thought-provoking experiences for hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, including innovative educational programs for over 20,000 schoolchildren and hundreds of families. Under the leadership of Director Kathleen Bartels, the Gallery renewed its commitment to presenting exhibitions of international scope that feature groundbreaking work by leading contemporary artists from such disciplines as architecture, design, performance, photography, film, video and the newest forms of digital expression, as well as the best of the traditional disciplines of painting, sculpture and drawing.

Research is a process. It is a continuum of stages that together make up a research plan. Below is a tentative sketch of what we think are the seven important steps of a research plan. For each of these stages we featured a short collection of web tools to help you carry it out. We have also created a poster capturing the steps and tools we covered here. You can download, share and use the poster the way you want as long as you use it for educational purposes.

The first stage you embark on after you have decided on your research topic and defined your research question is to start collecting data (e.g journal articles, blog posts, books, documents, PDFs…etc) related to your topic.  This process involves searching, curating and organizing your materials. Here are some tools to help you do that:

Google Docs Research Tool - Do quick research in a document or presentation

In a document or presentation, you can research and refer to information and images on the web without leaving the file. This feature is available on computers, Android phones, and Android tablets.

How to Search the Internet

Web search can be a remarkable tool for students, and a bit of instruction in how
to search for academic sources will help your students become critical thinkers and
independent learners.
